Romney doesn't officially become nominee until Thurs.

Although the gathered delegates tonight will nominate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan -- during the roll call vote -- they won’t become the official nominees until they deliver their acceptance speeches, according to Republican officials. 

So for Romney, he doesn’t become the official nominee -- and can’t start spending his money earmarked for the general election -- until Thursday.
